Written by Teresa Ferguson   

We are very concerned about NWACA's presentation to City Council members about deer in our neighborhood - and their mission to add stronger language to the no-feed ordinance. City staff said that they only received 23 complaints (about deer) in 2011...and none so far in 2012. Twenty-three complaints from more than 5,000 households in Northwest Hills. And some of those complaints were from the same people. And yet NWACA claims that deer are the biggest threat to our neighborhood. Really? Watch the presentation (link: http://austintx.swagit.com/play/02212012-522), then add your voice to the discussion by writing to the City Council (link: http://www.austintexas.gov/mail/all-council-members). NWACA isn't the only stakeholder in this discussion.
